The new decorative effects are obtained by means of the exclusive properties of Slamp's materials. The latest generation of Slamp products highlights the depth and brilliance of the patterns, offering sensations of semi-transparency and three-dimensionality. The new programme of ceiling and wall lamps was developed by the Slamp Style Centre, and it was also extended to new wall-lamp lighting concepts.
Ginetta is an innovative, irreverent Pop object: a playful but sophisticated idea, a perfect sequence of silhouettes that interweave into an unusual Baroque form to furnish the home with style and irony. A symbol of tradition, illuminated with new life by Nigel Coates, is transformed into a new design object by means of innovative materials. The result is this lamp with amusing, witty and humorous appearance.
Kristall is an original idea by Slamp Style Centre, based on the interaction of transparency, light, effects of colour, and new patterns. This collection of table lamps transmits the sophisticated sensation of crystal glass, while also offering the possibility of choosing from different shades of colour in warm amber and pearl tones, with an exclusive textured effect that expresses, in a modern and refined way, the fine weave of a coloured fabric enclosing the lamp.
Alessandro Mendini – an indisputable master of colour –, has designed a work for Slamp that represents a true personal challenge. The idea is to attain alienating and hypnotic characteristics. This lamp, called Venti is a part of this study. The eye and the psyche explore and encircle the form, wandering and losing themselves in the lines and channels of a white light. The sinuous, luminous paths create somewhat sidereal suggestions. Venti (winds) as the plural of "vento" (wind): in other words, flux, air, energy.
